Nyamuragira, a large shield volcano similar to Mauna Loa on Hawai'i, is one of Africa's most active volcanoes. Every few years, it produces eruptions often from radial fissures emitting lava fountains and large, fluid lava flows travelling many kilometers into the scarsely populated area of tropical forest and farmland surrounding it.
The Observatoire Volcanologique de Goma (OVG) reported that collapses of the volcano’s inner crater walls observed in May 2019 continued during 1-31 July. Lava fountaining from a small cone was visible.
